Etang de la Gruère
We ended our four hour walk last Sunday at the Etang de la Gruère near Saignelégier.
The Gruère pond is a perfect place to spend two or three hours. I want to go back when the flowers are in bloom. The last time we were there it was two years ago and in the summer. The pond was full of flowers and blueberries were everywhere waiting to be picked! People would walk by a bush stopping to pick some blueberries before continuing on their walk munching away.
Before continuing to the pond we stopped for a treat. Vilay and I split an apple cake while the kids had ice cream. Yum!
Because the ground is wet and you can sink in it in many places, you must walk on wooden platforms most of the way.
Do you see all that pollen?!? Good thing we don’t have allergies.
It is quiet and peaceful here.
There were birds in the water but not as many as I remembered from before. I think as the weather warms up more and more birds will return to the pond.
The blueberries weren’t ripe enough to eat but it won’t be long!
The children weren’t bored for one second and loved finding little treasures of nature hidden around each bend.
The flowers are starting to grow and soon will bloom.
The Jura sky always impresses me. It is awe-inspiring.
